Although the Ohio State Buckeyes football team didn’t win any trophies at the ESPYS last night, one particular running back for the team felt as though they just won the national title again.
While the confetti dropped down from the ceiling for the show’s finale, Ezekiel Elliot looked like a child sticking his tongue out trying to catch lemon drops and gumdrops. This isn’t the first time he’s tried to eat confetti either. Elliot did it when he celebrated the Buckeye’s win over Oregon in the National Championship this past January.
With Mariota winning the college athlete of the year, it might be coincidence that Elliot would do this. Trophy or not, Elliot knows how to always have fun. When you rush for 696 yards in the last three games of the season and are the main reason that your school won a national title, you’d probably be happy all the time too.
